+1 Campaign

This year, the Whittier PTA and ELP Steering Committees want to encourage you to think "+1" any time you are purchasing clothing for your own child.  Find a good back-to-school sale on uniform items? Consider buying one extra piece of clothing or one extra outfit that you can donate.  Are the seasons changing and your child has outgrown a few items that are still in good shape?  Think Whittier first. We will have a bin located in the main office where you can drop off these new (or gently used) uniform items throughout the school year.  Together, our efforts can make a big difference for the children in our Whittier community! 

Whittier T-shirts

PTA is selling t-shirts. Get your school pride on! Stop by the office for an order form or see a PTA member. Thanks for supporting Whittier Elementary.

Students' Safety and Security at School

SLCSD has provided cameras and “buzz-in” entry at all district schools. Our school regularly has drills for crisis situations, including school violence drills. We are constantly re-examining all aspects of campus safety.  We will make changes that provide extra security for our students.Please contact Dr. P if you see something that can be changed to improve school safety and security:
